The versatile jack plane is typically the first bench plane to touch rough lumber. This is the No. 5-1/2 version, which is slightly larger and heavier than the No. 5—ideal when you need more heft to get through challenging grain, or more blade width for edge planing thick lumber. Its uses range from flattening and squaring to preliminary smoothing. It is often called a fore plane, as it is used ''before'' the finer work of the jointer and smoothing planes. Quality materials, precision machining and solid construction result in a hand plane that's an absolute pleasure to use. The sole is precision ground flat to within a few thousandths of an inch. The blade is made from thick 1/8'' hardened carbon steel for reduced chatter and excellent edge retention. Solid sapele is used for the comfortable tote and knob, adding a touch of elegance. Each plane includes a case, sock, manual and individual inspection report with measurements specific to your plane for sole flatness and blade hardness.


Features:

  • Ideal for flattening, squaring and initial smoothing
  • Ductile cast iron body for superior strength and resistance to impact
  • Adjustable frog lets you narrow the blade opening for fine shavings
  • Easy depth-of-cut adjustment and lateral blade adjustment
  • Solid brass cap iron and threaded fittings for smooth action
  • Sole of plane and back of blade are flat to tight tolerances
  • Blade and sole are treated with a protective layer of oil
  • Certificate of Inspection included for each tool
  • Minimal setup and tuning required before use
